Today, 14/07/16, over the Firth of Clyde, Scotland on a warm sunny day with no wind I managed to reach a whopping 48.16mph with my Phantom 4.  I know that DJI say that 44mph is the top speed but depending on the environment a higher speed is possible.  

For the record, I was in Sport Mode, there was no tail wind, it was 18 degrees, and it was over the sea.

Evidence available if required.

Whats your highest speed?

Are carbon fibre props a good idea for the P4?

Where do you get them from ?

So 41 m/s is about 91.7 m.p.h.

You were flying with a 46 m.p.h tail wind ?

That would be a one way trip for any Phantom!

I would think so, unless modified ? (is it possible ?).

I suspect that the DJI stats are sometimes not accurate, I'm sure I've seen one or two strange figures for distance and speed on mine occasionally.

That 41 m/s was done in flying low (2-4meters) in frozen lake, and got optimal angle to tailwind. Also it was -2 celsius and sunny day so batteries were giving everything they could because not heating too much.

Does it get assistance from ground effect at 2m?  Seems unlikely...

Can you post the log on http://www.phantomhelp.com/LogViewer/upload/ ?   If nothing else, it will prove the speed was true...

can normally do 46- 48mph all day long in good conditions, 53.1 is highest speed attained with little to wind.

read someplace about polishing up props, sand edges with 600-1000 grit to remove burs and such.
Anyone giving this a try to improve performance ?
